beings now live in cities. what does that mean? more skryscrapers and congest 8? more detroits? we will look at the upsides and the downsides of an ever more urban world. we have a terrific panel that has some surprising ideas. >>> also les miserables. it turns out that the book by victor hugo is the all-time favorite novel of a middle eastern leader that the west counts as an enemy. i will explain. but first here's my take. we are watching a season of discontent in the world of young democracies. from egypt to turkey to brazil, protests, marches and, of course, one coup. as we watch the turbulence around the globe, i think about our own democratic journey and how interesting it is that the distinctive feature of the american system is not how democratic it is but rather how undemocratic it is. hear me out. we have three co-equal branches of government and the one with the final say on many issues, the supreme court, is composed of nine unelected men and women. the american senate is the most unrepresentative upper house in the democratic universe with the exception of britain's ho
of despair looms large over motown, detroit's next mayor will be former hospital chief mike duggin or the man we'll meet this morning, wayne county sheriff benny napoleon. august 27th, this is "the daily rundown." lets get to my first reads of the morning. secretary of state john kerry laid out an aggressive case for intervention in syria arking evidence of the largest chemical attack in decades is undeniable. the latest escalation with a steady drum beat by the united states and its allies, which is clearly a leadup to military action. >> the killing of women and children and innocent bystanders by chemical weapons is a moral obscenity. president obama has made clear to the outside regime that this international norm cannot be violated without consequences. >> it's an important phrase. you heard it a lot, not just from john kerry but jay carney, international norm, significant, ready for strike significant on three main tracks, one, intelligence community backing up conclusions the chemical attack was launched by the regime. that could happen as early as today. two, determination of a legal
plan until later this year. >> workers in new york and detroit have walked off the job and workers also in if chicago. we have one woman's struggle to get by. >> reporter: the squeeze of living paycheck to paycheck is all too real for nancy and her two kids coming home to a camped one bedroom apartment. >> we leap here. >> there is no room in her budget for more space, and staying ahead of the bills is impossible. for ten years she has worked at mcdonald's never making more than minimum wage which here in illinois is $825 an hour. >> i get last notice where i'm going get disconnected and i have to pay a portion of it so i have to come up with the money. he's living conditions are why why salgado and others have sustaining a stand for higher wages and respect on the job. the movement has asked for it to be moved up to $15. >> if these people earned $15 they could give back to the economy and they wouldn't have to depender on the government for food stamps. >> reporter: a substantially higher minimum wage may not be a win fall. at $15, they may be much more selective about who they hire.
, a bipartisan group of senators spoke in opposition to the measure. >> a once great city, detroit, lies in ruins. 50,000-barrel dogs from the city , abandoned houses ledger the landscape. it is a bleak and for large future that awaits detroit. creditors clamor for nearly $20 billion in debt. city employees wonder if there will be paid. there is not enough money to even replace the street lights and the trick. god forbid a major fire break out. at some level i think the president does care about detroit, but today all i can see is the billions of dollars, the billions of american tax dollars that he chooses to send overseas i see that shiny new technology, america's best going to harm people who are indifferent to us and at worst take us. the president sends billions of dollars to egypt in the form of advanced fighter planes and tanks. meanwhile, detroit's crumbles. chicago is a war zone. more people die in chicago this year than in afghanistan. if the president insists on building a $34 million board in afghanistan, hillary clinton insists on spending $80 million on a consulate in afghanistan th
, in washington, d.c., in st. louis, in kansas city, in detroit, in flint, michigan, and other areas around this -- fast food workers. they were people who work in burger king, mcdonald's, popeye, they are the ones who give you the hamburgers and the french fries. what they are saying is workers all over this country, they cannot make it on $7.25 an hour, $7.50 an hour. often they are unable to get 40 hours of work and in most cases they get no or very limited benefits. all over the country, these workers, often young people, are walking out of their establishments, their fast-food places and are educating the consumers about the economic injustice taking place in these fast-food establishments. what they are saying is we need to raise the minimum wage in this country, that american workers cannot exist on $7.25 an hour which is the national minimum wage now or $8 an hour or $9 an hour. my own view is that the very least we should be raising the minimum wage to $10 an hour. just do the arithmetic. if somebody is making $7.25 an hour and if they are lucky enough to be getting 40 hours a week

if you heard this but detroit announced bankruptcy today. that is the top story today. so the goal is to have the cities find a way to grab ahold of that suburban tax money and bring it into the city. so the bottom line is that barack obama wants to redistribute the wealth of america's suburbs to the city. to see the radical file community organizers who mentored and trained barack obama all those years ago in chicago they really didn't like the suburbs. in fact their ultimate goal was literally to abolish the suburbs. why were obama's radical organizing mentors so upset about the suburbs? they blamed the suburbs for the problems of the city because when people move out to the suburbs, they take their tax money with them. so obama's radical organizers put on their thinking caps and came up with a strategy for the economic and political independence of america. and as the strategies came, a movement called the regional equity movement, the regional equity movement sometimes is just called regionalism for short. it goes under different names and you might have also heard of the idea
